Lessons in Patience

Remember this? Yeah. It's still costuming season here at Chez Lannis.

The JordanCon costume is still going, and thankfully, my hands are mostly healed.

So here's a sneak peek:

Yes, it needs ironing. I'm acutely aware of this.
These violets? They take an average of 12-15 minutes each to bead... by the time I'm finished this year's costume, it'll be 183 flowers, over 5500 beads, and over 45 hours just hand-beading.

Yeah. It's a toss up between "lessons in patience" and "definition of insanity."

Regardless of which term wins, I'm pretty sure I'm the loser. Or at least the crazy person.

Especially since I have 36 violets left to go, and the handy dandy JordanCon widget keeps reminding me I have 23 days in which to finish these bad boys...

(Violets as bad boys. Heh.)

Where do I find the time? Well, that's part of being a spoiled princess—this would be that one thing I do just for me.

And well, I'm sure it comes as no surprise that Canada has a looong winter...
